Rotterdam as a laboratory
Join the conversation with our researchers

Science Hotel & Science Open

Scientific research, boring? What do you think of research into dating apps, making the port of Rotterdam more sustainable, finding for traces on a crime scene, or designing the ultimate tasty and healthy snack? 

On Friday, September 28, the science festival 'Science Hotel' took place. During this festival at the Nhow Hotel, researchers have shown you how the city brings them new ideas and they asked you to think along. 

On Saturday 29 September, Erasmus University Rotterdam organised the Science Open festival, full of science, music and art. Under the lustrum motto 'Science Meets City' everyone was able to talk to scientists and get to know the university.
